How does conveyancing in Chelsfield differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Chelsfield approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Chelsfield typically acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Chelsfield or who has acted in the same development.

I am using a search engine for the term on line conveyancing in Chelsfield it shows results of many conveyancersin the area. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right solicitor for purchase transaction?

The best method of choosing a suitable conveyancer is via personal recommendation, so seek the opinion of friends and those you trust who have bought a property in Chelsfield or a respected estate agent or mortgage broker. Costs for conveyancing in Chelsfield differ, so it's advisable to request at least four fee estimates from varying types of companies. Dont forget to clarify that the charges are assured not to rise.

I work for a long established estate agency in Chelsfield where we see a number of flat sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received inconsistent advice from local Chelsfield conveyancing firms. Can you clarify whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

Having spent months of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Chelsfield. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

Most certainly. We are happy to put you in touch with a Chelsfield conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Chelsfield property is 1 Southlands Court Southlands Road in September 2013.

The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 50.57 years.

I need to review estimates for conveyancing in Chelsfield from numerous conveyancer and appoint one. Do I tell them to sit tight until I a suitable flat to buy.

We suggest that you wait to ask your property lawyer to open a file and apply for searches once the sales confirmation has been sent by the estate agent especially as Chelsfield conveyancing searches are not inexpensive.
